The Ugly Prince


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Even the most capable people cannot escape calamity. Zhang Ping, who dreamed of becoming the world’s best, voluntarily enters the palace to become a eunuch before his father has to resort to plundering and crime.

How can a prince be so thin and bony, that was Zhang Ping’s first impression of Huangfu Jie.

The prince looks at the kneeling eunuch, the scars and wounds on his body not yet healing.

Zhang Ping’s eyes turn red—I curse your ancestors for eighteen generations!

He is just little uglier; weirder than normal people.

Are ugly people not human? I, Zhang Ping, swear to cultivate the world’s second best over here in the palace!

This is a heart breaking story and sweet story at the same time. U will experience how disgusting and unhappiness living in royal family. Just one word from the king dissatisfied, even though u r a prince, then u will be over. His mother hated him, his dad neglected him, his siblings all mocking and torturing him by word or psycal, and even servants can see him as though as a dog. Thts sooo disgusting. This novel ML is villain. Why not? All ppl in this story except MC is... more>> all bulliying him. Why not retaliated back? He hate his family, he hate his father, he hate his sibling that treat him lower than dog. Even a dog is being feeded. Well this is wht I can feel. I am sympatised him, hurt for him, and anger for the ppl who hurt him. Fortunately, MC will accompany his lonely days, but of course, the ML already twisted and alread bcm a madman. Even though like this, I feel, he is seriously need more love. Reccomend to read. Beautifull novel and enjoy it 😊 <<less

So I completed this novel and really liked it. I totally recommend it for all to read even if they dont plots with like royal family or emperor ML (like I did), because other than MLs journey to get the throne and MC helping him, there is no usual dog blood drama btw MC and ML. And I simply love the personality of the MC despite being an eunuch he doesnt lose hope and aspires to become no. 1 martial artist. He also encourages and helps the ML to become... more>> competent, even after ML becomes an Emperor, they dont any chance of love rival at all, and MC isnt one to get jealous so usually its ML who becomes frustated over MC not caring for him. All in all I loced the story and the extras too. Highly recommended! <<less

Eh. I can tolerate dubcon, but that goes up in flames when ML rapes MC in c20. It was good until then. I mean, I get it, ML is a wacko and he's acc been pretty nice for a yandere... but MC was bleeding but dude was still thrustin'. Good lord. Before that, he had a chance in the forest to r*pe the MC but he didn't and held back, and I was so, so so so hopeful that it'd stay that way. But nope.

I mean the dubcon was... more>> also ML manipulating the MC and coaxing and cajoling him into a s*x session, which I guess is okay-ish bc at least MC is willing, but damn. c20 was just woAH there slow dOwn bro.

At the same time, this is ancient times and MC is only a servant. Worse things could've happened, hence why this ain't a one-star rating. I understand, but that doesn't mean I like it. Is it too much to hope for a decently kind yandere ML? I'm not asking for a saint. Just someone who's yandere but doesn't just r*pe when things don't go his way? Like, manipulation.... alright, I'll let that pass. But damn boy you couldn't even be bothered to trick him. Just stuck your prick in despite him actually verbally refusing you again and again. *Sighs*.

I'm giving it 3 stars instead of one because the ML really was f*cked up by the palace life. He was even forced to eat worms so he wouldn't starve. He has scars all over his body from abuse and so his f*cked up mentality is well, justified. Again, doesn't mean I like it. You'd think he could've reined it in a bit for the one person that cared for him.

At the end, they do get together... I think. Well, after a whole shit-ton of emotional manipulation and 'distance makes the heart grow fonder' sort of thing.

Read if you will. <<less

Really promising. But the few chapters of both the novel and the webtoon feauturing the early life of the prince is so heartbreaking. The webtoon is pretty triggering (child abuse, both verbal and physical). I just want Zhang Ping to arrive and make him feel love as the prince has never experienced it before.

So it started rly well. The characters aren't your classic characters. The ML is even ugly, and MC's d*ck is cut off (geuss the shou). So the MC enters the palace in order to make money for his poor family, and there he meets the abused ML. The MC is rly smart and manages to save the ML without causing trouble. He knows the limit of his powers and not to offend those in higher positions.

It's wonderful to see ML's confidence, that has been given by the MC, grow over... more>> time, and he'll soon grow into a smart and merciless prince. The annoying part is that the ML starts to do things behind MC's back, while their union is what kept me hyped. I mean c'mon you owe it to the MC to listen to him and at least keep him updated. <<less

So this is really early on. We're not even at Chapter 2 yet. But I just wanted to say that on the translators website is also a Webtoon for "The Ugly Prince" that is also in the early stages, but it covers the history of the Ugly Prince's treatment after being born. And yes, his treatment is not so good. Still early on, but I have no difficulties following this translator's english/grammar etc. The premise looks interesting so far. So I'm hopeful for good development.

I first read this as manhua. Then as I scroll the yaoi pages on NU, I thought my vision doubleed (i am myopic). It really isn't just happened to have the same title. I checked the familiar characters and bam! Yes. This really has a manhua! And I already loved the manhua, the plot, the characters (except the antagonists who I am hoping to go die). Yes. This is worth to read!

only three chapters have been translated, but so far it seems like a really intriguing story, especially if you're tired of conventionally beautiful characters. As far as I can tell from mtling the rest, it's about politics, military strategy, & seeing the prince grow from an abused child into a capable & crueler adult - all of which are EXCELLENT EXCELLENT THINGS

This story was already published in my country. There's 4 books 1-3 and special. The story is FANTASTIC. I can't review about the short ver. Since it's been almost 10 years but this is my beloved series and I was sad when I lost the second book. WHY did books kept losing when you pack it to change their position?

Anyway the ML is a little twisted understandable from the way he was treated by everyone except Zhang Ping. Zhang Ping (MC) did tried his best to raise ML which turs... more>> out OK, at least ML is not about genocide or killed everyone he don't like without reason or at least make other people believe that he DID have good reason to killed them. <<less
